I know man 305 was indeed a terd, pretty bad when your own 4.3 vortec would outrun and outlast it. To answer your question, No. According to the site Direct Injection will not be on it, but that engine also aint availible to the public yet either. But from what I gather you have a choice in intake manifolds: either composit (plastic material, nothing new there) or an aluminum manifold. I bet that Twin Turboed would be sick. That would be awesome.

305 is NOTHING like a 302 ford. Sorry...it's still a SBC gen1 based engine...you must be forgetting about the 302 z/28 huh? For Trans-Am racing?

Apples to oranges..
Actually I did forget about the Z28 motor thanks. Completely forgot about that one. That was a good version, but that was not the one I was talking about. You're talking about a "factory sealed engine" there. That was a RACING ENGINE which is a whole different ball of wax my man. And your right about apples to oranges. The one I was talking about was junk not the Z28.

Yep and the last year Ford had a Cobra was 2004 when it was still SVT. They were only SC'd 4.6's with 390hp. Funny how the Lightning had the SC'd 5.4 and same year had less HP than the stang. Ford only made a 20hp gain in 5 years in the lightning but the stang had 70hp gain over same years.

Just to say it.... NOTHING official yet. All that's been posted in autoblogs and forums are rumors and spy shots. I expect a full OFFICIAL press release and unveil come the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. I think the 315hp 3.7L v6 info was released for the LA Auto Show, and the big guns will debut at Detroit. I.E. The 5.0 and it's numbers.

All links posted are rumors and have been the same rumors over the past 6 months and the same rumored numbers as well. One link is dated Sep 09. I can pull links newer and older than that, and most all share the same info.

Just to clear this up.... LS6 WAS a 454 big block Gen1 rat motor back in about '70 in the SS454 Chevelle and I believe it was offered in the Vette as well. The name came back in the form of a Gen3 mouse motor.

I don't know what you've been smoking my friend but please pass it around. Every GM engine other than their performance crates have had problems. Chysler's Hemi and their crates will be gone soon thanks to Fiatt (Italian made car company) who bought them out 6 months ago. My neighbor across the street has had 4 lemons from GM and all were different models. He's also had 2 lemons from Chrysler too. So how do you figure that Ford only makes junk? Plus why would I spend right at $30,000 bucks for a GM Canyon or Colorado and be lucky to get a radio when I could spend less than that on a New 2010 Ford Ranger fully loaded?

Oh ok. Wrong generation on my part. Plus that earlier version was a Cast Iron block compaired to the aluminum block they have out now. I'd rather have the power of the Rat motor but in the size of the mouse motor that's availible now.

EDIT: Good god dude.... you GET rat power out of a mouse STOCK. Look at virtually all LS series engines.... ALL available now either in a vehicle or out of a crate.. Read up.




LS series engines are incredibly good engines. Wait til John gets his *** in here to see all this action...


Your arguements are so off the wall, they don't make any sense whatsoever.

I quit.

I was making a point. Basicly you said Ford builds nothing but junk engines, well so do the other competitors. Do you get it now what I'm trying to say man?

Oops, please tell me I didn't report the wrong member? all I was doing was posting what I found on the net about this new engine, before I knew it things get out of hand. I tend to get my info mixed up a bit and I only have one magazine that I recently purchased. Dec. 2009 issue of CarCraft. The reason is because there's a killer article in their and some photos of a 98 XLT Ranger that just spent the last year getting turned into a Prostreet monster. It's on Page 76. I threw out ALL of my magazines and kept catalogs only.

I get what you are trying to say, but it makes no sense. Get off fords ***** and open your eyes.

Look at the powerstokes, worst diesels on the market
Look at their 4 bangers, GM's ecotecs blow them away
Look at the 4.6, LS1/LS2 blows it away
Look at the 5.4, 5.3 truck engine blows it away
Look at the 4.0, 4.3 blows it away


The only normal engine they had going for them recently was the 03/04 cobra engines

It wasn't an argument. I was stating what I thought Shane. If I'm wrong then I'm wrong I don't give a damn. PLUS wasn't you that told me to google this new engine in another thread?

Excuse me! I'm not that way. That's another side of the story too. I've owned other manufacturers vehicle before and have had extremely bad luck with them as well.

Damnit Korey, I knew you'd make me your sig.



Knightmare...I too get what youre trying to say...it just don't make any sense whatsoever to the subject at hand. Talk about bouncing back and forth and up and down on unrelated subjects. Yeah it might have been me who brought up the 5.0...I'm gettin' antsy for the specs and future test drive. lol.

Well back to the subject at hand, the new 5.0 specs on the website I listed earlier said that blueovalnews.com had the specs listed. I'll look further. It's about time that ford got back to the basics and stick with what made them famous to begin with. Now if only they would bring back another version of the 351 like they are with 5.0 that would be kool. There's one thing though, you do have to give me credit for having some passion towards vehicles that no one will ever take away from me. Things just got a little out of hand when someone mentioned another manufacturer's engine. I appreciate all good quality made engines and some people are entitled to their opinion. I've just bad luck with GM is all. If ever get another good one like the 1986 Buick GNX, then I might agree with you guys.
